Hi all, I'm looking to build a stable/field shelter. It would be getting built on compacted hardcore but I am wanting to put a layer of concrete/brick in before putting a timber frame on top of that to prevent the wood getting damp. The existing stables we have were built straight onto the ground and are basically rotting from the bottom up. One way I was thinking of doing that was using concrete lintels underneath the timber. Would this work or can anyone think of any issues. Any advice would be appreciated.
